Decadent Gluten Free Vegan Baking By Cara Reed Book Review+ Giveaway! (Closed)


If you are gluten free, dreaming and aspiring of being gluten free or not even gluten free at all like me, you are going to absolutely adore the book I am featuring today! From the basics to the more creative baked goods recipes, Cara covers it all!  The good news for all of you, my dear readers is the giveaway included. One of you will win a copy of your own which I will personally ship out to you. So DO read till the end of the post to see all of the details for that. 

Now, let's talk about the amazing cookbook full of mouthwatering recipes for every baked treat you'd want to whip up!  


How it looks: Enticing. I really love the black background with the white lettering as it reminds me of a chalkboard in a fancy bakery with all of the dishes of the day written out in pretty cursive lettering. Also, don't those cookies look so chewy and perfect? I think you really can't help but flip through the entire book immediately after seeing them!

What's inside: There are over 100 different recipes included in this soft cover book all of which are written out clearly and seem to be super easy to follow, even for the gluten free newbies. As would be expected from a popular food blogger, the pictures in this book are so clear, beautiful and tantalizing! For me, great photos are always a big plus.    

Price: This book is sold for about $19.99 which is very decent for a cookbook of it's size!


What I love: The pictures obviously! I also really like that she has a basic blend for her powder ingredients which she's included in every recipe so if you have that already prepared, you have the foundation of every recipe already set each time.  

What I don't love: I really can't think of anything I don't like about this book. I feel like it would be really easy to follow for anyone both gluten free or not. 

My favorite recipe: Definitely those gingerbread cupcakes. They are so clever and cute and also great for the season we're coming upon. This may sound absolutely ridiculous but I am certainly planning to prepare a non-gluten free version of my own. I don't think I will ever be able to cut out gluten- it is what I live on, literally! 


This book can be purchased here or here and of course go and check out the author's site forkandbeans.com for some more amazing vegan and gluten free recipes!
